The past week or 2 the reds at low water and high have been going nuts. Low water the fish are charging the shrimp hard, in groups of 3-5 fish flying down the flats with birds working over them. On the tailing tides we have been seeing a good number of reds tailing,with great succcess rate to boot. Last sunday John Kennedy and his buddy nailed 5 fish That’s great in the grass, the same night I talked to Jim Mercer and he had informed me they nailed 9 reds in the grass!! The past few hurricanes passing by stirred the water enough to cool it a bit and the fish have taken advantage of this. Speaking of hurricanes Jim Cantore of the Weather channel really chafs my *#@ What a spank ! I think the guy finds any puddle with some wind and rain and blows it up in dramatic fasion.

I have been fishing the Georgia and South Carolina Coast for 30 years and guiding full time for 20 plus years. What you will get from me is a quality fishing trip, whether with fly rod or spinning tackle that is always a long time on the water for the rate. My half days run more like 5-6 hours and full days are over 8 hours. 4 hours on a half day just isn't long enough to fish. What you will not get from me is a quick trip to spots 5 minutes away that are fished heavily so can make it back to the dock in time for my next trip. I have guided through out the southeast as well as Alaska and the Bahamas. I have been instrumental in developing shallow water sight casting in Georgia and South Carolina and have been the first to introduce Tarpon fishing on fly rod to South Carolina and Georgia!!
